  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Bit hard to describe this, I have a rattle that sounds a bit like a loose heatshield its there when pulling away and when revving the engine happens with the AC on or off. Has anyone come across similar? Car is a 9-3 Sportcombi 1.8t
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I have recently changed the light pattern on the headlights of my 2008 9-3 in the hope this will pass the Sweden registration/continental driving regulations. I did this by setting the lever tucked inside the headlamp to the down position (both sides). Anyone know if this will work...
  3. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi, my turbo is failing - it has started to whistle during normal driving, increasing to a whine, then a scream if I put my foot down. Should I stop driving? Am I sending little metal particles into the engine by continuing to drive? I'm thinking if I unplugged the power supply to the EGR...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've recently had an intermittent, but increasingly frequent, issue with one of our Saabs cutting out. The car is a 2006 9-3 1.9 TiD vector sport estate.This used to happen completely randomly when driving at any speed and would sometimes be proceeded with a jolt which the engine would...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I just replaced my springs and struts in my 03 9-3... Now when I'm driving there is a loudish noise that seems to go with the front rotation of the car, the noise is not there when I'm accelerating or braking but it is only there when I'm coasting.... The noise also goes away most of the time...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It happened all of a sudden without warning, just died whilst driving normally so i rolled it to a safe place and tried cranking and it just turns over but won't fire up. Occasionally it catches for a split second but never manages to fire up fully. Does anyone have any idea what i could look...
  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi all, My first post here. I've got a C900 1985 16v FPT (RHD)- The transmission was making some nasty clunking after breaking at a junction which felt like it was causing the front to jump in time with rotation. I limped the car home going no faster than 10 mph. I've jacked the front of the...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    We just bought an 07 1.9 TiD (150bhp). It's a really nice car, loads of power, very comfortable and great to drive. The problem is that if you drive, for instance, for a few miles at a reasonable speed, say 60-70mph, when you then slow down in traffic, the car smokes a lot. Swirls of blue/white...
  11. Saabscene: Performance
    So i have been through quite a bit with my 1995 saab 9000 aero. I recently replaced the turbo and am waiting for the forge WGA. The question is this. If I drive super carefully, i.e dont spike the turbo, can I actually drive the car without damaging the engine or turbo? I have to go to a funeral...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I own a 1988 Saab 9000 turbo and since I bought the car I have been hearing a whirring noise. It usually only starts once the cars warmed up and doesn't matter what hear I'm in or even sitting idle, I hear a loud persistant whining noise from the drivers seat. I popped the hood and can't...

    I guess I'm really bored making this topic. What music do you guys like to play when you're driving your SAAB ? The music that makes you sit back in that amazing seat and beat german ****-boxes. I like to play this : Because it sounds amazing on a good sound system. and this is for when...

    Hi, Was driving my 2005 93 1.9 tid today and had an odd few minutes where there was not an insignificant about of white acrid smelling smoke coming from my exhaust. Today I was driving back to my house, slow moving traffic as the m1 was horrid. Anyway after a about 10 mins I noticed a...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Can anyone help me with ideas of what could be causing this??? While the engine is running and I am driving, the car display enters checking mode which means that all of the dash lights and dial displays temporarily go out then come back on. Occasionally this causes the clock to blank out until...
